    "GDPR: how charities should prepare for data protection changes
    New regulations affecting fundraising, campaigning and volunteer management come into effect in 2018. Here’s how you can be ready:

    Four letters – GDPR – have been imprinted on the minds of fundraisers and charities over recent months. The general data protection regulation (GDPR) is a new EU law that will come into effect on 25 May 2018 to replace the current Data Protection Act. It’s the biggest overhaul of data protection legislation for over 25 years, and will introduce new requirements for how organisations process personal data."

    The law is changing for charities, which means that we will no longer be able to contact our supporters unless we have consent to do so – we need your permission to keep in touch."

    It affects this forum as well

    I've not had time to catch up with the act but need to soon for work. I believe the best practice for privacy has been to have opt in for contact rather than opt out for some time.
